Maxine Waters Caught Using Violent Rhetoric In Extended 2018 Speech
Maxine Waters (D-CA) is facing renewed criticism for allegedly inciting violence in a June 2018 speech in L.A. An extended version of the famous fiery speech is circulating online.
The previously circulated version of the video included the famous words, “If you see anybody from that cabinet in a restaurant, in a department store, at a gasoline station, you get out and you create a crowd. And you push back on them,” Waters told a crowd of supporters. “And you tell them they’re not welcome anymore, anywhere.”
On MSNBC, Waters attempted to defend her speech by hiding behind the child separation situation at the border. She said, “There was a movement at the time where restaurants were denying members of his administration, of his cabinet, and saying, ‘You guys should speak up for the children.” She claimed that she was not trying to incite physical violence.
The extended clip of Waters’ 2018 speech contradicts her claims, however. She was recorded saying literally violent phrases. The Democrat leader said, “we kicked [Trump] in his rear and we stepped on him.” Later, she appeared to threaten the Trump administration, saying, “If you think we’re around you now, you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
Regarding the January 6th Capitol invasion, Waters claimed on MSNBC that President Trump personally “sent” the invaders.
“Nothing any Democrat that I know of have ever said or acted in the way the president of the United States has acted. People must realize, this president was out to destroy our democracy if he could not be president. He sent those people, those domestic terrorists, to the Capitol to take over the Capitol. Even they are saying so, they’re saying they were invited by the president. The president was rallying them right before they went. He told them to ‘be tough,’ he told them to ‘take back their government.'”
Maxine Waters is currently serving as the House Financial Services Committee Chair.
